Culver City, CA

As a junior print producer you will help manage and implement creative visions of our brand and optimize the customer journey experience throughout our fast growing retail locations. The junior print producer will play an integral role in the implementation of marketing communications, creative campaigns, in-store signage, and will report to the print producer. You will learn proper communication, process and production for creative initiatives such as menu rollouts and marketing collateral. You will play a key role in the management of our digital storefront where teams + stores request, order and fulfill a variety of marketing materials and signage.

Note: This is a temporary role budgeted for around four months or more, subject to demands of the business.

Core Work Activities:

  • Print Production: Assists in managing print production of various types of collateral (e.g. seasonal menu collateral, signage), including ensuring delivery files are production-ready, being diligent about the proofing process, managing the distribution lists (e.g. setting up distribution lists and variable data sheets for the vendor), and partnering with the field to ensure delivery and placement.
  • Print Data Asset Management: Helps manage the DSF (digital storefront) through our print vendor by making sure all items are in inventory and ready for stores to order. This includes filtering through the old files and determining what is to be discarded. 
  • Project Management: Once assigned a project, seeing the project through production, meeting assigned deadlines, and coordinating shipping to the site.
  • Continuous Improvement: Evaluates, optimizes and updates processes to better align with the creative team’s needs and the overall pipeline. This also includes discarding items that we no longer used and evaluating our items in inventory.
  • Budgeting: In order to run a successful business, there is a keen attention to detail even in the budget. You will not be responsible for the budget, but will be onboarded with the tools and learning to show how print production is tracked so you can bill to the right codes.
  • Expansion: Our creative team is growing rapidly and so is our restaurants. We plan to open at least 40 this year. You will be looped into that process and will help to send print collateral for some of the openings.
  • Field Requests: Day to day management of our creative email address for when stores reach out with a request. It is imperative to respond quickly to assist our restaurants in helping bridge the gap in between our team members that work in our restaurants and our headquarters.
  • Vendor Relationships: Learning how to communicate with 3rd party vendors and printers in order to complete projects. The print production team will teach you proper etiquette and industry terminology.
